|Paper 53 plus Brushes|
So this one of Marvin was started in Paper and then imported into Brushes - I just couldn't have got the detail on his tongue with Paper.
The drawback with the more sophisticated Brushes is that it loses some of the spontaneity of the simple program. This face was done by starting with a black page and then removing the colour. I like to draw faces when watching the television - they end up being an amalgamation of characters.
'Marvin Dreaming' is an experiment in mixing, and below an attempt at a landscape copied from one of my photographs.
The main purpose of this is to refine my drawing skills, but of course I also have to conquer the electronic sketch. Nothing will replace paper and paint, but it is good at making you look and analyse colour and shape.
Just to prove something else is going on...
some stitching in progress - more of that later.
The sun is shining here at last, but it is very chilly.
I do hope you have a good week,
